It is in an area of outstanding beauty in the quieter part of West Newquay. Ideal for families, couples and friends. The apartment benefits from its own dedicated off-road parking space and beautifully maintained landscaped and fenced grounds. Built in 2004 it is sunny, airy and spacious. It is heated by gas central heating, all rooms have opening windows and wood laminate or ceramic tiled flooring. Ideal for families, couples and friends who wish to enjoy the luxury of tastefully coordinated quality furnishings and fittings making it a 'home from home' and suitable for all year use. A simple 2 minute walk down a rugged path, or 5 minutes on the pavement, and you are on Fistral Beach. Flat beautiful golden sands and numerous rock pools at either end are a great favourite with children. (Fistral Beach has an RNLI presence from Sping to October.) Either end of Fistral Beach there are cafes/restaurants, surf hire and toilets. Sit and picnic in the landscaped gardens, relax and enjoy the views, listen to the ocean and smell and feel the freshness of the Cornish air. Or try one of the other 9 beautiful sandy beaches in Newquay. The Coast Path passes Fistral Retreats which makes it an ideal choice for walking north and south. There are also less arduous gentle walks onto the Pentire Headland, 5 minute walk from Fistral Restreats, with fantastic views and an eaterie (open all day) serving breakfasts, cream teas, lunches and evening meals. Crantock Village with its golden sands and dunes are just a 10 minute walk across the River Gannel footbridge or ferry (in season). Quiet and peaceful but within walking distance of all the amenities that Newquay has to offer. The vibrant nightlife, shops and supermarkets, numerous eateries offering local Cornish delights as well as dishes from around the world, to suit a vast array of taste buds, are all within easy reach. For families there are some 9 beaches to choose from as well as a Waterworld, Fun Pool, Zoo, Aquarium, horse riding, lake, Farm World, Pitch and Putt and 4 Screen Cinema, all year round tennis, leisure park, bowling and more within walking distance. Those seeking an adrenalin rush may prefer surfing at Fistral or one of the other 8 premier surfing beaches. Then there's diving, sea/river canoeing, coasteering, sea/coarse fishing, kayaking, segway, snorkel safari, cage diving with the sharks and much more. Alternatively, there is the finest all year 18 hole golf course just a 2 minute drive (10-15 minute walk) which is extremely popular with golf enthusiasts. As well as a pitch and putt course on the headland (less than 5 minute walk) and 2 or more in Newquay. Eat at the Bistro set in the cliffs on the Esplanade directly below Fistral Retreats, or the Lodge at the end of Pentire Headland and watch the sun setting with the ocean lapping below, or pop into one of the hotels nearby. If you fancy a gentle walk along Fistral Beach or the coast path to North Fistral try Rick Steins or the Fish House. Swimming pools and spas are open to non-residents at neighbouring hotels for a small charge. Ballroom dancing is also available at a local hotel. Information on local places of interest, sports, activities for all ages as well as Ordnance Survey maps are available at the apartment and from The Newquay Tourist Information Centre and their website.More
